St Joseph’s College is an 11 to 18 co-educational Catholic school which provides places for Catholic and non-Catholic pupils. Since our foundation in 1932, St Joseph’s College has been a forward thinking community, which provides the very best environment and atmosphere to foster excellence inside and outside the classroom. St Joseph's College is part of the Edmund Rice family of schools, founded by the Christian Brothers and following the charism of Blessed Edmund Rice.
In 2005, we were awarded Specialist Status for Science and Mathematics and are a designated high-performing, specialist school. This enabled us to provide a fully equipped, purpose designed and built science block with modern laboratories. Rated Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in 2008, the College was amongst the first schools to convert to Academy status on 1st February 2011. In 2012 the school became one of the country's first Teaching Schools.
